Diesel rpm vs pto vs bush hog – page 2 – yellow bullet forums grade 9 electricity test and answers

When you bog down in heavy cutting,and push the clutch in to stop the tractor,does your pto stop also? Or will the mower continue to run? A tractor with a live/independent pto has a separate clutch or engagement device besides the clutch that drives the transmission gears. A live pto is usually considered a two stage clutch where when the pto is engaged,halfway down on the clutch pedal,the tractor will stop,but the pto will continue to run. Pedal all the way down,both travel and pto stop. This was common in later Fords,Masseys,etc. An indepent pto is usually a separate hand or switch controlled clutch,full independant of any transmission function. Older tractors like the n series Fords,C,H,M Farmalls,etc. have the transmission dependent pto,runs off the countershaft in your transmission,only one clutch plate in the tractor. See this on some small Asian tractors also. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is what you have. Is there an overriding clutch on your pto shaft where it hooks to the tractor?

The overriding clutch he’s talking about has splines and goes on the shaft of the tractor and the bush hog drive shaft hooks to it. Many tractors without live power use them because sometimes without it the spinning bush hog can actually push the tractor when you are trying to stop.
